about this time last year, before we were engaged, my FI and I were thinking about a 20k wedding in LA for about 200 or so guest. we thought we could really pull of a fab wedding with that amount in los angeles. now, our wedding budget has ballooned to 45k with only 125 guests. our parents are helping out with 10k from each side but saving 25k between the both of us with low paying jobs is getting to us.
today for the first time we literally did not have enough money for lunch. (long story short, we both work in seoul, korea and transfer “wedding money” to our american account right when we get our paychecks) it brought me to a point where i thought that i’d just want to blow off the whole wedding and just get eloped. half of the people attending our wedding are our parents guests and to think that so much money is going to them is also making me mad.
i feel like because of my engagement high i lost sight of what’s really important about that day. i wanted all the top notch things without thinking about any other consequences. too bad all the contracts are signed. i’d love to just back out and do a simpler more intimate wedding.
